Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook, has been named Time magazine's 2010 Person of the Year.

Every year Time magazine gives its accolade "to the person or thing judged to have most influenced the culture and the news during the past year, for good or for ill," the Guardian reported. The Guardian quoted Time journalist Lev Grossman, who said that Zuckerberg was honoured "for connecting more than half a billion people and mapping the social relations among them; for creating a new system of exchanging information; and for changing how we all live our lives."
